Birther nonsense back in Missouri
The Kansas City Star
In another productive day in the Missouri legislature, the House Elections Committee sat through some painful testimony from Rep. Lyle Rowland of Cedarcreek in southern Missouri, who wants to resurrect the birther issue.
Yes, Rowland told the committee, Missouri is the Show-Me state and its unofficial motto should be “trust but verify.” President Barack Obama presenting the original copy of his birth certificate on national TV is apparently not good enough.
For an excruciating look at your legislature in action, watch Rowland’s testimony before the committee. It’s a real point of pride.
